The great thing about a trip to Vancouver Island is that it offers something for everyone, making it especially awesome for a trip with the family. And good news if you’re taking a trip with the family in tow during May: there are plenty of family-friendly events scheduled to take place! We outline just three of them below.

There are few tales more enchanting than Alice in Wonderland. It’s a magic adventure if you’re an adult, so you can imagine how amazing it must be for kids. On May 17 and 18, you can take a trip with the family to see the Ballet Victoria’s interpretation of the classic story. Takes place at the Royal Theatre.
Take your family along to the Cook St Village Block Party, and enjoy a day enjoying live music, food and drink, and an awesome community atmosphere! Takes place, of course, at Cook Street Village on May 26 from 10am to 5pm.
The family friendly Folk’N Fiddle Festival will be taking place at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sydney from May 31 - June 1. Head down, and enjoy the music -- there’ll also be workshops, a kids room, and local artisans selling their products, too.
After all that fun, make sure you’re taking your family back to the best hotel in Victoria for a good night’s rest.
